Yes, but the Bookreader does not display by default for audio mediatypes. The primary document here is text. Please make this change. Thank you in advance.

the only way to change that is to not have audio files in the item

There is no audio file in the item any longer.

Could you please make this change? Thank you. (If changing the mediatype for the post is too difficult, then please delete the page and we'll just do it over.)


Is this a difficult operation? In the past, when such accidents have occurred, the change was made without so much pushback.


We provide audio with our texts as an accessibility alternative. We primarily use text mediatypes for the flipthrough viewer that comes with Bookreader, and have the audio available in those posts just in case. I really don't see the necessity of arguing this since we have been doing this for years. It is only when we accidentally neglect to notice that the mediatype is set as audio in the form that we request assistance.

it's a texts item now. you could upload the audio seperately and add links in the descriptions of both items to each other.
